Rover admiring Mount Saint Hellens
Rover enjoyed her view of Mount Saint Helens in Washington. She was impressed by the grand scale of devastation caused by the eruption of 1980. Much of what was once a dense forest is still visible, but now looks like combed hair as the logs lay flattened on hillsides. They all face the same direction — away from Mount Saint Hellens. Rover learned that a stone wind (a stone filled blast of up to 680 MPH) raged through the area. That's more power than the sandblaster used to remove her old paint job!
